Today, Christian theologians from all over are calling for a “big picture” story that takes the spotlight off us and shines it directly on God’s enomous plan to redeem the whole world! In my book, THE DIVINE RESCUE, I tell what Max Lucado calls “‘the sweetest of stories’ — God’s relentless pursuit of his fallen people.” With this book, says Max, “the drama is captured on paper.” John Michael Talbot, the beloved Franciscan singer, calls THE DIVINE RESCUE “scholarly, heart-warming, and approachable for the average Christian.”
Meanwhile, author-poet Calvin Miller, whose books include THE SINGER and many others, describes THE DIVINE RESCUE as “the ultimate ‘once upon a time’ and ‘happily ever after’ story of the human race. I read it all in a single sitting,” Miller says, “and I was blown away!” President Rubel Shelly of Rochester College also appreciates the core of “serious theological content” wrapped in such a “light writing style.” He promises that this book will “delight and enlighten” the reader.” How can he be so sure? Because “the grand theme of Scripture is highlighted again and again.”
Dr. Doug Lee, Community Baptist Church in Rancho Cucamonga, California, used THE DIVINE RESCUE for a class at his church. His conclusion after he finished –“one of the best books that gives the Big Picture story of the Bible.” Rita Purser used THE DIVINE RESCUE to teach her class in a Methodist church in Jackson, Mississippi. “Edward Fudge unfolds the drama of the salvation story from Adam to the open gates of eternity. This book would make a wonderful gift,” Rita urges. “Edward Fudge continues to be one of my favorite Christian writers,” writes Rita. “I know without a doubt that I can depend on his writings to be Bible-based and God-inspired.”
Finally, Jeff Christian, my preacher at Bering Drive Church of Christ in Houston, Texas, says: “When Edward asked me to read his newest book, I thought, ‘Oh, dear God. What if I don’t like it? How do you tell a new friend it was just an okay read?’ So I sat down, sighed, and cracked open THE DIVINE RESCUE. When I looked up, a few hours had passed. I had lost track of time! This is great scholarship that lives up to its billing as a proclamation of a gripping drama. However, I recommend THE DIVINE RESCUE because it does what good preaching is supposed to do: It tells the story.”
